The interactive essence of the installation was supported by miniature boxes, folded origami-style from a single piece of paper and containing a small Plasticine ball – gifts for the visitors to take ideas home from the exhibit and share with friends. The BAUA pavilion was a hit: visitors actively participated in the making of future visions by playing with the big ball as well as taking away the small gift boxes.
Prior to the opening, two days of installation and a workshop was held by the BAUA delegation for Japanese university student volunteers. The playful and artistic imagination surpassed initial expectations. This successfully initiated the first generation of visions to invite following interactions. All visitors who enjoyed playing with clay participated in the creation of our future. Through the smiles and positive comments of the visitors, the architects believe they engaged in meaningful communication and fulfilled their initial tasks.
Indeed, the future is the sum of our collective effort.
